Sorry Kanye, but this fan doesn't want to let you finish.

During Kanye West's set at the Glastonbury Festival in Worthy Farm, England, on Saturday a man rushed the stage and began mocking the rapper. The man -- since revealed as English comedian Simon Brodkin, who performs as the character Lee Nelson -- came onstage during West's performance of "Black Skinhead." West continued rapping briefly, then stopped, throwing his hands in the air, as a security guard removed Brodkin. West then started the song over.

Brodkin, as Nelson, tweeted about why he interrupted the performance, saying that it was in response to festivalgoers' petition to remove West from the lineup. The petition, signed by almost 135,000 people, requested that West be replaced by a rock band. Before his performance Saturday, the "All Day" rapper told Q Magazine that the petition was "an insult to music fans all over the world."


Here's the stage rush again, because why not watch it on loop?
